In 1784 the First Industrial Revolution used the power from steam engines to mechanise production. Nearly one hundred years later electricity and the division of labour drove the Second or Technological Revolution. The mid-20th century saw the Third or Digital revolution. Automating production by changing from mechanical to digital electronics and IT.

Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is happening. Built on the Third it takes technology to the next level. Artificially intelligent immersive technology is everywhere, from virtual assistants in our phones and homes to autopilots driving our cars and flying drones. The global market is already at $30 billion and growing strongly.
